Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is set to make a highly-anticipated appearance on Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid! As fans of the survival show know already, not only will she and other contestants have to manage in the middle of nowhere but they are also required to have zero clothes on their bodies, hence the title!
Maci may have been excited to take on this adventure, but there is someone close to her that couldn’t have disapproved more!
Her son Bentley Cadence Edwards is definitely not all about it in a new video.
In a preview for Teen Mom, the mother asks Bentley: ‘I leave for Nicaragua in a couple of days. What do you think about me actually doing it?’
‘It is scary, sort of,’ the boy replies, adding that he believes her partner will ‘tap out.’
Maci however, assured her child that she is perfectly capable of surviving without a man.
‘I can survive without a man, I promise. I am not quitting, baby.’
The contestants need to survive in the wilderness no less than 21 days bare and supply-less, with only what nature offers them in terms of food and water.
So we totally understand why her son would say it’s scary.
However, considering she joined the celebrity edition, it was not as difficult.
‘Filming lasted about three days. Maci spent a great deal of time training for the show before she left. She had to bring a few extra ‘personal’ items than the typical contestant on the show, but other than that, she did not get a lot of special treatment,’ an insider revealed.
Clearly, she survived the milder version of the show, and we cannot wait to watch the episode as soon as it airs.
